ABORT/ ERROR MESSAGE, use Mozilla Firefox





Sorry for those who are unable to access. All I can figure out for now is that it is a problem with Internet Explorer. If you have Mozilla Firefox the blog comes up no problem. I am trying to fix it. I will try and get the bug out, but so far have been unsuccessful. Sorry for any inconvenience.

2nd Trimester here we come.....

Whew!! Another milestone reached. We are just waiting on our latest scan which KT had on Thursday the 5th at Hiranandani Hospital. We are both on pins and needles, and I literally check our site every hour to see if its been updated even though Dr. Sudhir said it would take a couple of days before they get the results. We are just so anxious to see how our little one is growing and seeing the ultrasound makes it all seem so real. We heard from KT the other day via personal video and she was again, all smiles, telling us she is good and the baby is well too. She just wants us to hurry up and come to Mumbai to meet her in person. What an amazing feeling that gives us.

Your Baby at 12 weeks:
Baby's face is looking more human as his eyes have moved to the front of his head and his ears are in place. Hooray!

Other amazing fetal highlights this week:

Your baby is able to swallow this week and practices on the amniotic fluid he or she floats in. (And you thought baby food was kind of nasty!) And in case you're wondering how your kid can breathe in all that fluid, here's your answer: Fetuses get oxygen from the blood pumped into their bodies by the placenta and don't breathe with their lungs. Mystery solved!

This is kind of gross, albeit fascinating, so feel free to skip ahead: Your baby's intestines are well under way, but they aren't all where you'd expect them to be. Instead of all being locked away in the body cavity, some are dangling on the outside, in the umbilical cord. Ewwww.

Don't forget to put a baby nail file on your registry—your little nugget's finger- and toenails are forming this week. The chin and nose are also becoming more defined.

Junior has doubled in size over the past two weeks and now weighs almost ½ ounce. He's also now around 2 ½ inches long, about the length of your pinky finger or a Vienna sausage, which, in a few months, will be indistinguishable from one another.
